Azzedine Alaïa celebrates the woman's body. Her clothes "must be a part of her, she must feel them on her body," he says in 2013.

This sheath dress reveals the body more than it covers it in a hidden game shown between the technical fishnet, trompe-l'oeil jersey flesh and bare skin. Secured by an internal bodysuit, the dress shapes the body, adorned with bands of Velvetino, a viscose down designed by Alaïa.
